The pioneering Joy Care by Bristan, a BEAB Care and RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) endorsed shower, is being used in conjunction with shower pumps in order to meet the complex requirements of wet room retrofits in the care and social housing sectors.

Traditionally, due to the fact that wet rooms designed for wheelchair needs typically incorporate level access to the showering area for ease of use, gravity drainage is not always an option. As such, a Level-Access Pump (LAP) is needed in order to provide a reliable solution for waste water removal – however it can often be a timely task to find the right shower for the right pump solution.

With this in mind, the new Bristan Joy Care, an innovative shower  developed to provide the ultimate in ease of use and high design for people with varying capabilities,  has been designed to be used in conjunction with a number of LAPs including the market leading Whale Pump. The result is a comprehensive solution for commercial industries seeking an easy and cost-effective solution for their washroom requirements where disabled access is needed, particularly care homes and social housing providers.

Lisa Ward, product group manager at Bristan, comments: “Since its inception in April (2015), our Joy Care shower has proven an unprecedented success – providing the market with a truly innovative shower which can cater for varying abilities while, unlike most market offers, also incorporating a stylish design.

“In particular, Joy Care has proven hugely popular in the care and social housing sectors given that, crucially, it can be used in conjunction with the full scope of LAPS, including the market-leading Whale Pump. The result is an easy to install and retrofit shower incorporating high functionality without compromising on style.”
